“Meet Me By The River’s Edge” – The Gaslight Anthem

See I’ve been here for 28 years.
Pounding sweat beneath these wheels.
We tattooed lines beneath our skin.
No surrender, my Bobby Jean.
(2x)

We’ve been burned by all our fears.
Just from growing up around here.
Our father’s factories marked our cars.
While Eden burned against the stars.

And Sally said, Sally said.
I can’t take no more regret.
It cut us deep, into our souls.
Came and climbed into our bed.
And Sally said, Sally said.
Meet me by the River’s edge.
We’re going to wash these sins away.
Or else we won’t come back again.

You know I had these ballroom dreams.
That, as a child, came to me.
I was a boy in Grandma’s arms.
A mother’s pride and a wounded heart.
And I was full with fiery wonder.
You wore Audrey Hepburn pearls.
You were the only one who understood me then and the only one who will.

And Sally said, Sally said.
I can’t take no more regret.
It cut us deep, into our souls.
Came and climbed into our bed.
And Sally said, Sally said.
Meet me by the River’s edge.
We’re going to wash these sins away.
Or else we won’t come back again.

And now I drive the 101 on the California night.
And I’m amazed at all the stars beneath that old Hollywood sign.
And they waltz, (?), to a place we never kept.
And I’m not sure if we belong here, if I ever really left, or If I can go home.

And Sally said, Sally said.
I can’t take no more regret.
It cut us deep, into our souls.
Came and climbed into our bed.
And Sally said, Sally said.
Meet me by the River’s edge.
We’re going to wash these sins away.
Or else we won’t come back again.

No retreat. No regrets.
Meet me by the river’s edge.

Now here is Sheryl Crow with her version of The Who’s “Squeeze Box”

 

Finally here are The Who recorded in 1976 on the “Who Put The Boot In” tour.

“Squeeze Box” – The Who

Mama’s got a squeeze box
She wears on her chest
And when Daddy comes home
He never gets no rest

‘Cause she’s playing all night
And the music’s all right
Mama’s got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

Well the kids don’t eat
And the dog can’t sleep
There’s no escape from the music
In the whole damn street

‘Cause she’s playing all night
And the music’s all right
Mama’s got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out

Cause’ she’s playing all night
And the music’s all right
Mama’s got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes, squeeze me, come on and squeeze me
Come on and tease me like you do
I’m so in love with you
Mama’s got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out

‘Cause she’s playing all night
And the music’s all right
Mama’s got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

Here are The Four Corners with a cover version of  a track from The Stooges.

Say You're a Scream

“No Fun” – The Four Corners

The Four Corners are a band out of Athens, Georgia, with a sound that’s undeniably sleek and infectious. Grounded in the mod sound of the ’60s but by no means trapped there, this quintet’s songs fuse grooving and sophistication into a throughly modern sounding formation.

Tracy Hatch (keyboards, vocals)
Julia Rydholm (bass)
Neil Cleary (drums)

On their 2001 released CD, “Say You’re A Scream” (on Kindercore Records) they put forth a tight blend of yesteryear hip and now urgency. Just try and stop shimmying to the sweeping rhythm of the way-cool title cut — bet you can’t. Tracy Hatch’s vocals have a graceful sheen and the guitar work of Ryan Lewis and the mysteriously named Ice is throughly skillful. Hatch’s Farfisa playing adds a retro-colorful flourish to their tunes.

Aside from their finely-honed originals, The Four Corners lend their hand to a few covers, most notably the chestnut “Long Tall Shorty” and as above the Stooges classic “No Fun.”
